"The state of California is a major world power. It has the 10th largest economy in the world, a population greater than Canada, and a worldwide influence on media and popular culture. It deserves its own seat in the United Nations." The response should discuss federalism, the definition of a nation, and the powers of state governments. (Don't even know how to get started)

    If California split off from the USA, it would hurt our country. It would hurt us economically, by taking away a big chunk of our wealth. California doesn’t deserve a seat in the UN. The UN is only for nations; people in California are US citizens; they do not have a culture or a culture that is exclusive to the rest of the US. In this sense, California is not a nation. Federalism is the system where states and national governments share power. There's what i put. I'd flip some words around if i were you.
